Footpaths access post-Brexit

A number of local and national papers reported that the walking charity, Ramblers, has urged that farmers to use their taxpayer subsidies to maintain footpaths on their land after Brexit.

The charity also added that farmers should be rewarded for adding new public-use paths.
